School Success in Vice-Chancellor Awards

The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Brian Cantor, CBE has this week presented 24 awards recognising those who have made an outstanding contribution to the life of the University.

Within the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science two separate awards have been received.

Student run Computing Society ‘PiSoc’ was awarded for their Outstanding Achievement in their continuous support and advice to students. Congratulations to students Robert Norvill, Tyba  Aziz, George Bell, Connor Aspinall, Denis Torgunov, Natasha Micic, Matthew Gibbons and Callum Eidson.

As the first British Computing Society Student Charter the group makes good use of opportunities to visit talks given by industry professionals and get involved in local competitions.

The society recently launched a mobile app of their own creation; after learning the Android platform from scratch the students successfully created a Periodic Table app for sister team, the Chemical Forensic Society. PiSoc regularly hold sharing lectures where they teach one another new ideas or advancements they have made, as well as giving talks to Schools and Colleges about the wonderful world of Computing and all it has to offer. 

Future Ubiquitous Networks Research Group  was awarded an Excellent Achievement Certificate for their work future-proofing integrated aeronautical communications. Well done to Professor Fun Hu, Dr Prashant Pillai, Dr Kai Xu, Dr Muhammad Ali, Dr Rashid Munir, Adeel Ahmed, Mohammad Amir, Kirils Bibiks and Lin Zhang for their ongoing research.

Each of the Vice-Chancellor’s awards recognises work which achieved the overarching objectives of the new University Strategy:

  • Excellence
  • Internationalisation
  • Equality and diversity
  • Sustainability

The assessment panel, made up of staff and students, have said that they were impressed by the number, strength and overall quality of the field of nominations this year.
